DEC 30, 2019 | Wisconsin Winter Storm happening now

LAST UPDATE : DEC 30, 2019

MON 6:16 AM - Making a less second adjustment to the snowfall forecast adding a 6-10" to western WI. Outside of upper Michigan all models show the highest amounts between Wisconsin Rapids and Eau Claire. I didn't want to over-adjust. I like the 3-6". Current radar reflectivies are a tad weak but they will intensify throughout the day. Trimmed the snow amounts back in eastern WI where temperatures are still in the 40's from Oshkosh over to Sheboygan and up into Door County. Confidence level has improved to "Average".

SUNDAY

SAT PM LIVE STREAM

SAT UPDATE - Models today generally agree on accumulating snow for much of Wisconsin on Monday as the low reorganizes over the state. Some models heavier than others(see maps). The other issue is that temperatures reach near 50F on Sunday in southeast half of Wisconsin, then snow on Monday which makes me think there will be some compaction and perhaps some melting on contact in the south. Didn't want to overreact because models clearly show snow across all of Wisconsin by late Monday night. I tried to follow the current snowpack line across central WI with the 2-6". But overall, Monday intrigues me. Keep an eye out! -JP

FRI UPDATE -Snow is likely across northern Wisconsin and upper Michigan on Monday, perhaps into early Tuesday AM.

Reorganization and wrap-around snow expected Monday. Hard to say exactly how much snow will fall.
Reorganization and wrap-around snow expected Monday. Hard to say exactly how much snow will fall right now.

It's hard to say what magnitude of snow accumulation will occur right now. Models/ensembles are not in total agreement. It seems at the worst several inches (perhaps 6" or more) could fall over portions of northern WI. On the other hand there are many models weaker or with a different location on the heaviest snows altogether. I want to wait a little longer to see how models handle the somewhat erratic reorganization of the low. Getting snow into central(certainly southern WI) feels like an uphill battle at this stage so need to make sure it's legit before going down that path.

I will be keeping an eye on it this weekend.

The highest so far in Wisconsin. Curious to see more reports from the area, including Wausau up to Rhinelander.
Snow is ending moving to the south. Close to 9 inches reported near Rhinelander the highest so far. Most places east and west in the 3-6 range
Do you think we get 100% snow covered roads tonight? It's possible! Slippery spots in east central WI. Still in good shape around Milwaukee but will worsen somewhat tonight.
Snow finally on the move into southern WI. Temps dropping too as nighttime arrives helping snow to stick to pavement. Snow will end by 4am Tues
Looks weak on radar and partially due to radar not picking it up near Rhinelander. Snowing across the north; heaviest in upper MI and western WI. Snow will pivot out of the north today and begin impacting southern Wisconsin closer to 6PM. Pretty quiet down south until then.
Places west of Wisconsin Rapids already seeing snow. Rain across much of northern & NE-WI right now but beginning to change over in some areas. Reflectivites kind of weak right now...expect intensification today.
Increased Wisconsin Rapids/Eau Claire into the 6-10" range. Still like 3-6" for northern WI overall. Trimming back slightly in eastern WI where temps remain quite warm.
Rain will move in from the south overnight. It's coming in from the south-southeast - kind of unusual storm track - and will pivot around throughout the event. Rain will turn to snow (heavy in spots) during the early/mid morning hours tomorrow morning.
Temperatures will reach into the 50s over southern Wisconsin today. Very warm for Dec 29th.
A large slug of rain will pass through overnight. Additional rainfall amounts in the 0.5-1.0" range. The rain will reduce to a mist/drizzle Sunday morning/mid day as the dry slot sweeps through.
the first bands working in now. It's falling as a light rain or freezing rain in the north. Slippery spots reported in the Eau Claire/Minneapolis region. Wintry mix to continue today in the north, changeover to rain for everyone this afternoon/tonight.
